Pretty paper experiment

The current challenge at Lili of the Valley is Pretty Papers.  For this card I tried to do something I've never done before.  I've used papers and flowers and couple of vintage tags from Set 49 Le Jardin but I've not used a stamped image as the major feature.  I've done this to make the papers and flowers rhe man features of the card. The tags are coloured with ProMarkers

Papers used are from Lili of the Valley & Raspberry Road Designs - Father Knows Best, Antebellum and Lili of the Valley &NitWit Collections Solids - Promises.  For the first time I've had a format distressing the papers to give the card a vintage look.

The flowers and leaves I've used are from Wild Orchid Crafts

Finishing touches are a pear flourish, a couple of brass butterflies and some blue butterfly stickers.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges
Lili of the Valley - Pretty Papers
CRAFT Challenge  - Add a Charm/Use Metal
Deep Ocean Challenge - At Least One Flower
A Little Bit Crafty - Distress It
Paradise of Stamps - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Vintage

Happy Weekend - making the most of mine I'm back to work on Monday
